Survival Food

On the first day of Mrs. E. testing positive for COVID, I took action. I went shopping. I figured it was only a matter of time before I would be persona non grata at the grocery and I had some clams to use up from a CSA/farmshares delivery. Little did The Architect know that his gift of September’s Food and Wine magazine would turn out to be so timely. With the substitution of clam juice for seafood stock, Israeli couscous, and chopped parsley and green onion for color (I had to use dried fennel), we managed a special meal in relatively short order. One needn’t suffer completely. Sardinian Fregola with Clams.

  1. I doubt anyone who knows you, even if it’s only as a customer in the grocery store, would ever consider you persona non grata, COVID or not. But I also suspect you would be courteous enough to never put them in a position to make that choice.

    I hope both of you are feeling better.

  2. Oh dear—I just found you and I’m afraid I’ve already lost you—-please say it’s not so! I have so enjoyed what I’ve read so far!

  3. Hello Chris,
    It’s great to read your new posts. I hope you and Mrs E have recovered well.
